How to select multiple pictures without copy

My digtal pictures are stored in a doc. folder. In the past when I wanted to send several in a single email, I would hold down the Ctrl key and select the files I wanted to send and then select the option to send in an email. Today...each time I held the Ctrl key and made my selection, windows made copies of all the selections. I've never encountered this before. I've always been able to make multi selects and complete the task, weather it be send in email or move to another folder. How can I stop windows from making copies of the selections and just highlight the files?

Thanks,

Sky

Increase the double-click timing (Control Panel - Mouse) ... or just try a slow and careful click whilst holding down the Ctrl key. Do you still get the copies?

The slow approach worked. I just recently bought this computer, and thought I had the mouse click set to my touch. I am still trying to fine tune all the settings to my liking. Thanks again!

You're welcome!

You'll find that adjusting the double-click timing will enable you to click at a greater speed without making copies!
